THE BOWLERS OF AMERICA, through the BVL, proudly present to America’s Hospitalized Veterans the entertaining and uplifting performances of… Re-Creation!
As part of the bowler’s commitment to veterans, The Bowlers to Veterans Link sponsors the dynamic Broadway style performances of America’s Premiere Touring Group, Re-Creation, in all VA Medical Centers nationwide!
Arriving at the VA facilities four hours before show time, Re-Creation group members set up, change into costumes and visit hospital rooms and wards. Then they assist patients to the show area and perform for them!
And what a show! Full size staging, professional choreography, numerous costume changes, audience participation, and light comedy, all combined with flair to capture the diversity of the veteran population. From Big Band, Broadway & Barbershop, to Pop, Country, Rock ‘N Roll!!!
Every program includes words of thanks, on the bowlers’ behalf, to the veterans for their service.
After the show, the young people in Re-Creation visit some more with the patients, give them full color autographed pictures, escort them back to their rooms, say goodbye, pack up and load equipment, and drive on, averaging 300 miles a day…
Through this and other programs, the Bowlers to Veterans Link is keeping a promise made to our veterans when the organization was founded… “WE WILL NOT FORGET YOU!”
